    Bugger,

    I can't close Pages (trial expired, and I need it - I will be buying 07 once it comes out), so I can't update as I'll have to restart.

    Any way around this?

    Leopard

    10.2.8 was released on October 3, 2004, followed by the release of 10.3 on October 24 (21 days later).

    10.3.9 was released April 15, 2005 followed by the release of 10.4 14 days later, on April 29.

    Leopard must be close.

    Hmmm, I wonder if this is a sign that 10.5 is nearly ever so ready so they've released this?

    It kinda happened with 10.3.9, with Tiger coming a month or two after. :)

    Thanks for that statistic. Leopard is less than a month away in my opinion.

    i would love to think that this means 10.5 is close, but more important to me personally right now is that mini update. when an i see that!

    ...mind you if they want to give me a mini with 10.5 in the next 3-4 weeks, i won't complain or anything.... :p

    Sorry if a little off-topic, but how much did the Tiger update cost on release?

    Also Updated ATI and NVIDIA graphics drivers

    - Updated ATI and NVIDIA graphics drivers sounds good.

    I think we're going to see lots of updates to the Mac Product line after Leopard's release. The only update I can see happening is the 8-core Mac Pro after that little incident yesterday.

    Can anybody open up the Aperture info page? I keep getting a "document not found" error.

    I want to know if they included RAW support for the LEICA D-LUX3.

    Hmm... to me this says that my post in the Leopard April release thread has some merit, and that Leopard is indeed due soon. :)
